Project ACCESS, a project funded by the Division of Special Education through Missouri State University, provides autism resource information to public schools in the form of on-site and telephone consultations, as well as support via internet.

In addition, Project ACCESS designs autism specific professional development opportunities and trains professional credentialed individuals to present these courses through Missouri's Regional Professional Development Centers (RPDCs). These trainings are offered to Missouri school district staff and educators who work with youngsters ages birth to 21 years, who experience Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and related disabilities. On-site child specific consultations can be arranged through the use of Missouri Autism Consultants (MACs) and district staff can be trained to be in-district autism consultants.

For on-site consultation requests, resource training materials, and Project ACCESS professional training opportunities, email Joanie Armstrong at joanarmstrong@missouristate.edu or call toll free 1-866-481-3841.
